"A stodgy Paul Williams mansion with icky decorative flourishes, especially in its 6(!) bathrooms," writes a reader, passing on the listing for this Los Feliz. Hey, don't knock stodgy. Uh, wait. This six-bedroom, six-bath home is indeed in need of an upgrade, according to the listing. "First time on the market in 33 years. A Paul Williams Architectural gem. 6bd/6ba, formal living room and dining room, office, swimmers pool, massive family suite on a separate level with gym and darkroom....Grandeur awaiting your updated vision." So much potential, perhaps. But for now: Bathtub fanciness. And a kitchen in need of a renovation. A Paul Williams fixer-upper will cost you $2.79 million.
